Led by Faculty Director Jennifer Vokoun, the Class of 2020 cohort of Blouin Global Scholars wrapped up their final days together on Friday, April 4, with a Zoom gathering to celebrate their collective accomplishments. Through the student-produced creation of short videos, the Blouin’s created personal compilations that highlighted their four years of studying food, hunger, and sustainability through a local and global lens.

During their time at Walsh, students traveled to Tanzania and Rome to explore food systems in a global context. Locally, students facilitated programs for campus and the community including the 30 Hour Famine experience; Chopped: Campus Edition; the Ohio Hunger Dialogues; and the campus farm.  

While the world has changed so much in the past few months, the student's experiences, highlighted in these videos, reveal how the Blouin program has shaped the students academically and personally, to be leaders in service to others, prepared to meet the challenges ahead. Congratulations to the Blouin Global Scholars of Class of 2020!
